Egg hunting and yet another birthday!

We are celebrating another birthday! This seems to be a year of milestones in my family, my mom turned 50 April 11th and decided to come to Florida to celebrate with us. Her favorite cousin came too and we had a wonderful time! The boys also egg hunted twice this weekend...Darius was so proud and Devyn called them balls.

autism awareness month and another birthday

Today, April 2nd is national Autism awareness day and April is national Autism awareness month. As you all are aware Autism has affected our home. Ironically April 2006 was when Darius was officially diagnosed. I don't recall the day in April but at that time I wished it was April fools. It was really hard at first to talk about it and even say the "A" word. Now I can say it with confidence and not feel sad. Darius will be 6 on Sunday and is doing so good...truthfully speaking. He is now spliting the day at school in the general education class and at some points you will not even recognize some of his Autism symptoms. So everyone if you can please donate to toys r us, autism speaks, or any organization that is raising money for the cure this month it will really help. We need more money for research to see why so many children are being diagnosed with Autism more than ever. Here are some pictures of Darius at his birthday party last weekend. His birthday is April 5th but we had the party a week early.
